Geometric isomerism is specifically cis/trans isomerism, so E/Z is not geometric isomerism. It is, however, a type of stereoisomerism, and an E/Z pair of stereoisomers are diastereomers, as diastereomers are non-mirror image stereoisomers

A pair of E/Z stereoisomers are non-superimposable non-mirror images. So they are diastereomers
